The Earth Garden is the first Earth location players encounter. Beyond it is the Earth Dojo. It consists of 5 stone pillars, topped with grass, that stand in a pool of quicksand. The earth garden features the new mechanic of swimming.
Using any type of Spinjitzu while in the quicksand and then attempting to move normally will allow the player to speed swim at the normal speed of walking, featuring an animation similar to the front-crawl. Also, via use of a horse, the player is able to walk normally.
